I walked by Masjid Aqsa Mosque in Harlem yesterday and noticed there was no activity going on inside. When I walked closer to the building, I noticed the mosque was boarded up with an eviction notice slapped on the outside for all to see.
A few years back the mosque tried moving to a new location on Manhattan Avenue, but that failed for some reason. Yesterday, I asked on the street what happened? Why the eviction notice? Someone blurted out, the mosque got behind on their rent.
If anyone has any other details on Masjid Aqsa Mosque in Harlem, please chime in!
